This is the one thing I like more about LastPass’ Mac app.
Taking realy long to adopt touch id, staying with 1Password because cheap price means slow adoption.
this would be a super useful feature. having to enter a pw all the time is very time consuming.
This is my #1 thing I would like to see added it would save so much time
Is there a time frame for enabling touch id support. I want to move from lastpass due to better equivalent domain support in bitwarden. I’ll even buy the premium version once touch id is supported.
Likewise. TouchID has been standard on Macbook Pros for over three years now, this seems like it should be extremely high priority.
Any update on this?
I am also waiting for this feature. This would improve the user experience so much!
I finally switched to bitwarden premium.
It’s great having TouchID on iOS - so please bring it to macOS as well!
Can’t wait for this feature!
Much MUCH needed functionality!
+1, much needed feature, especially in the iPad
+1 This is the single feature that I need for the “wife approval factor”.
Electron has native support for Touch ID since 6.x that was released in July.
Is it plan to add this to Bitwarden Mac client?
Anyone working on this already? I can spend some time investigating Touch ID support, but don’t want to duplicate effort.
From the lack of activity in this thread I think it’s safe to assume that there’s nobody working on this. So if you would be willing to give it a shot, that would be awesome.
It seems like you are definitely not going to duplicating the effort. Can you make it? Do you need any help?
Sure. Let me get started. Will reach out using this thread when I have a better sense on the changes needed and testing required.
Looked into the code of the Mac client, browser client and chrome extension a bit. Unfortunately, Touch ID on Mac will take quite a bit of work.
Mac client: it’s still based on Electron 5.0. Touch ID support is only available from 6.0. No backport yet.
Browser client / Chrome Extension: Chrome does support WebAuthn with Mac Touch ID (Safari doesn’t yet). I will need to add a WebAuthn server to handle registration of the TouchID as system authenticator and add a button to the web app to call WebAuthn API to authenticate. It’s doable, but I won’t have sufficient cycles to do all the work; and it will be limited to be usable on Chrome/Mac.
Good news. Electron was updated to version 6.1.7 3 days ago
